The Los Angeles-based 3D printing company SprintRay is going to launch a Kickstarter campaign for their desktop DLP printer MoonRay on April 28th.
April 22, 2015: Based on the digital light processing (DLP) technology, MoonRay uses a custom-built UV DLP projector to cure photosensitive resin. An efficient use of space allows the MoonRay to offer a build size of 5 in x 3.2 in x 9 in (12.7 cm x 8.1 cm x 22.9 cm), with a 100-micron resolution that can layer down to 20 microns.
“This advanced high-resolution technology is available on a much larger scale and we were determined to bring it to consumers in an affordable desktop model,” SprintRay Founder and CEO Jasper Jing Zhang said.
Co-Founder and Engineer Amir Mansouri added: “We worked hard to combine quality and affordability in the MoonRay, using the most advanced technology and highest-quality components. We believe the users of desktop 3D printers should have affordable access to the best technology on the market.”
